in a world that seems to be limited to very few words . . . mainly
• insults,
• name calling,
• spiteful accusations,
• degrading statements,
• thinly veiled racist attacks —
we MUST review what this “dumbing down” of so many citizens
means . . . what does it say about me???

TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER . . . we must find the path to UNIFYING PEOPLE

• are we tired yet of the childish playground bullying techniques?
• are we ready to take a breath and refuse to fight, fight, fight???
• are we able to see that we are all people who basically want the same things:
a safe place to live, food to eat, and a way to provide the basic needs for ourselves and for others?

Unacceptable WORDS to use in discussions: hate, beat, kill, invaders, lock up, fake . . . and this is just the beginning of how to speak respectfully to one another and make progress toward being what we are . . . human beings AND we need each other to survive in this world, to identify and find the best solutions for challenges that are too big to handle by one person.

WORDS to use in discussions: please, explain, understand, opinion, my view, feel, need . . . and these could open doors to sharing perspectives that would help us all gain a better understanding of needs and potential answers of issues that impact us all.

A crust in comfort is better than a feast in fear.       Aesop (c.620-560 BC)

About Jeanne

a work in progress . . . God's grace has brought me through many traumas of varying intensities and I am alive today (both physically & spiritually) because of Him and His work: "For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus"-Philippians 1:6. My childhood was spent living in many places in the United States due to my family's music or ministry—The Hicks Family, made up of Olan & Barbara Hicks, my younger brothers, Clint & Chuck & me, sang in different combos (put out an album), does so no longer professionally . . . but, visit a family gathering in Searcy & you're bound to hear some foot-tapping sounds (or catch my dad & mom on the road)! I believe that every moment of each life path (the good & what I perceive as the bad) God works together for my good as His child whether I understand it or not. MUSIC and MINISTRY are still primary aspects of the path God has me walking—so exciting! Words that have encouraged me since 1980: ". . . giving them a garland instead of ashes,The oil of gladness instead of mourning,The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting So they will be called oaks of righteousness,The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified." Isaiah 61:3
